Creating a ready-now leader from your current employee is one of the best types of career development opportunity, that a company can offer to its employees.
If you want to grow a leader, you primarily need to look for talents within your organisation and not seek for external talent sources. This means to get the leader you want, from your current employee.
There are many reasons, why you need to look for talent internally within your organisation. The two main reasons are as below:
Imagine, how your employees will feel valued and embrace transformation on realising, that you are preparing them to be the next organisational leader of change.
What do you think matters to employees in terms of motivation, satisfaction, engagement, etc.?
Swinging between the possibility of engagement levels being either extremely high or low, the next step is to sustain these engagement levels, change preconceived notions and make them grow with the company in a longer run.
To perform this you need to primarily realise that it is not a one-time execution, but an ongoing process that commences right from the day one, when your employee decides to join and become a member of your organisation.
Here are some of the steps on, how you can transform your current employee into an effective ready-now leader:
The more you make your employees valued for their contributions, and empower their ability to be the next leader, the more they will continue to be engaged to upscale your organisation to new heights of success. This process of creating a ready-now leader is ongoing, and one of the most effective ways to motivate key talent and retain them with the company.
